Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow from India hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him put together and file a strong EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. He knew about our sterling record of over 10,000 approved I-140 cases, and we did not let him down. Just 10 days after we filed the personalized EB1A petition on his behalf, he received notification of case approval.

Our client had assessed the work of his peers 68 times at the time of filing, which demonstrated the great extent to which he has been distinguished as a highly respected researcher. Further, he had an impressive citation and publication record to his name. The following statements regarding our client’s achievements were made by his peers in their recommendation letters:

  • Regarding his 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 8 peer-reviewed publications in conference proceedings, and 3 technical reports: “[Client’s] publication and citation records have established him as a leader in the scientific community, as have his record of presentation and publication at the conferences that are more common to our particular field.”
  • Regarding the 236 times his work was cited: “Such a record would be impressive for any scientist but is particularly remarkable when one considers that engineering is normally a low-citation field and that [Client’s] work within the discipline is highly-specialized.”

Our goal was to showcase the value of our client’s research to the United States. We emphasized that his work on the underlying processes and mechanisms of human biomechanics and motor control address some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the neurological systems that are responsible for detecting the body’s position and controlling its voluntary and involuntary motion.

We are pleased that the EB1A petition dossier which we put together successfully highlighted our client’s unique combination of skills. We convinced the USCIS that he is making critical research contributions to the field and the country, and that he deserves to move one step closer to US permanent residency. We thank our client for working with us and wish him the best with his research.
